Desert Island Game II: Qualifying Round 4

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fourth qualifying round of the Interference Desert Island Game II! The premise of this game is that all of the Interferencers have been stranded on a desert island and we can only take up to 160 minutes of music with us (either as a continuous iPod playlist or two 80 minute CDs or any other format of our choosing). The object is to see which forum member can fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

The third qualifying round was a very close-fought battle between dazzlingamy and FitzChivalry, and the forty of you who voted really threw a spanner in the works by splitting your votes 50/50! That's right, Amy and Fitz ended the round tied on 20 votes each. This means that both of them will proceed to the heats, but we haven't yet finalised the details of how this is going to work. At this stage, it looks like one heat will be a three-way clash.

Moving onto the fourth round, the tracklistings of KhanadaRhodes and Lara Mullen will be competing against each other. Below, you will find their tracklistings. If you are unfamiliar with the songs included, we can help you hear them! Just leave your e-mail address.

Reminder for contestants: if there was an error on your tracklisting, let me know before your round so I can post the correct tracklist on the thread!

Sorry about the lateness of this round, folks, though this time is better for me than midnight!

Like the previous round, I'll have to give this one some more thought before voting. I miss the prog rounds.

Definitely gotta go with Lara on this one. Her list is extremely strong, and while I like parts of Khananda's, there are certain spots that just kill it for me. There were a few songs on her list I just can't stand.

I actually like a lot of the songs on both lists, so this is going to take some thinking.

I voted for Khanada, and not just because of this

Actually I know more of her songs and had an 80s flashback there, though the Wang Chunk(sic) and Europe almost did me in. But it's got Salome!

I think I have to go with Lara Mullen.

I am a child of the 80s and still love my 80s music, but I hate Miami Sound Machine and Gloria Estefan enough to make me vote for the other one.

But Lara's has a LOT that I really like, too.

Very, very close. I recognized more from KR's list, but Lara gets my vote because some very wonderful songs made the cut and she also incorporated some more obscure artists. Very good.

I've really enjoyed this competition and part of me wishes I would have participated. Oh well.

My vote goes to Lara, seeing Europe (despite the Arrested Development connection) and Miami Sound Machine is just not easy for me to get past.

This is going to be REALLY hard. Both have artists I absolutely LOVE! Underworld is probably my 3rd favorite music in the entire world, but the Underworld is countered by the inclusion of Muse

I'm gonna have to think on this one.


oooooh, and The Crystals "And Then He Kissed Me"!!!! I had that in MY tracklist up until the very end!!!!

not to be a jerk or anything, but just because less people know of an artist does not make said artist better than "pop"ular artists.

i understand tastes are subjective, but they should be culled from the music itself, not based upon the popularity or anonymity of it.

just my $ .02

ok, i'm off my soapbox now.

Khanada, almost simply because of one of my favourite ever songs, Dance Hall Days. Both were intriguing and enjoyable though...
